24 April 2018

Porta Communications Plc

("Porta" or the "Company" or the "Group")

Issue of Equity

Porta Communications Plc (AIM: PTCM) announces that it has, conditional upon Admission, issued and allotted a total of 3,954,619 ordinary shares of 1p each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") to two employees of the former PPS Group Limited ("PPS"), (the "Employees"), to satisfy the second half of their executive bonus arrangements.

PPS, now the Engage practice within Newgate Communications Limited, is Porta's wholly owned consultancy that specialises in reputation management, community and political engagement and regional PR and advises on projects such as complex property, infrastructure and energy developments.

As announced on 14 March 2017, a total gross amount of GBP300,000 (the "Bonus") would be payable in cash or shares to the Employees, and at that time the first half of the Bonus was satisfied by the issue and allotment of Ordinary Shares to the Employees. The Company has now elected to pay the second half of the Bonus of GBP150,000 (less applicable taxes) through the issue of Ordinary Shares. Consequently, the Company is issuing 3,954,619 Ordinary Shares to the Employees in full and final settlement of the Company's obligation to pay the Bonus, calculated with reference to the average middle market closing price of the Company's Ordinary Shares for the five business days ending 12 March 2018.

Application for admission to trading

Application has been made for the 3,954,619 Ordinary Shares, which rank pari passu with the Company's existing issued Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to trading on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange ("AIM"). Dealings on AIM are expected to commence at 8:00 a.m. on or around 30 April 2018 ("Admission").

Total Voting Rights

For the purposes of the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules ("DTRs"), following Admission the issued ordinary share capital of the Company will comprise 460,890,669 Ordinary Shares with voting rights attached (one vote per share). The Company does not hold any shares in treasury. This figure of 460,890,669 may be used by the Company's shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the share capital of Porta under the DTRs.
